How to submit

  • Processs

    Google / other forms

  • Cover letter

    No cover letter advice

  • Eligibility

    No specific eligibility requirements

  • Formatting

    Your story must be typed in a readable font (bonus points for following Modern Manuscript Format).

  • Author's rights

    And here are the rights that I ask for in exchange for the above: Worldwide first serial rights (this is the right to be the first publisher of the story anywhere in the world; I need worldwide rights because the website is available throughout the world) Non-exclusive, indefinite archival rights (this is the right to keep your story up on the website indefinitely; you can request that your story be removed once the annual anthology is out, but I would be sad to see your story go) Reprint rights (for publication in the annual anthology, more on that below) Now, a word on the annual anthology. All of the authors published in the annual anthology have the potential to earn royalties on whatever money (if any) it earns. There will be four stories in the annual anthology and I will pay a royalty of 40% of all earnings after I have recouped my expenses. That 40% will be divided between the authors published based on the percentage of their words that make up the total words in the anthology. The $50 up front payment is an advance on those royalties and there is no guarantee that the anthology will make enough money to pay any more royalties (or that I will recoup my expenses).

  • Additional info

    Your story must not have any of the following: graphic sex or gore or excessive profanity. If your story was a movie, it should probably be rated PG-13 (even a hard PG-13 is okay). Your story must have a science fiction or fantasy element, however light (okay, if you don’t follow this rule, I won’t know until I’ve finished reading your story, but your story will still be rejected and I will be even crankier). Payment is $50 upon publication. Also, there will be four stories in the annual anthology and I will pay a royalty of 40% of all earnings after I have recouped my expenses. That 40% will be divided between the authors published based on the percentage of their words that make up the total words in the anthology.
